Question about Acer Aspire M1641-U1521A PC Desktop

2 Answers

I have an Acer Aspire AM1641 U1521A desktop that will not boot up. No beeps, errors or monitor activity. I installed a video card but that did not solve the problem. Hard drive spins up. Also exchanged the jumpers and pulled the battery to reset, but still no change. Wondering how to reset the bios from a flash drive on this desktop.

Acer m6141 starts up but screen stays black No error messages (beeps). Tried starting up without graphics card , 1 memoryblock instead of two etc.


If you are sure the display is good, the video card may be defective and needs to be replaced.
Look to see what type you need, AVG, PCI Express or PCI.
I hope this helped.
Good luck and have a good day.

I have an Acer Aspire AM1641 U1521A desktop that will not boot up. No beeps, errors or monitor activity. Do I need a new hard drive, motherboard...?


Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.

Has enough power to light LED lights, maybe spin fans, (Or spin a few times, and stop), but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

1) ALL of the LED lights combined use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Depends on what Processor it is.

Acer Aspire M1641-U1521A?
Intel Pentium Dual Core E2180 (2.0GHz)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_Dual-Core_microprocessors#.22Allendale.22.2C_.22Conroe.22_.2865_nm.29

Can use up to 65 Watts. (TDP)

The Power Supply used is a 250 Watt unit. Acer isn't known to use high quality power supply's. It's a generic low quality Power Supply.

[ However in all fairness to Acer, if the inside of the computer, AND the inside of the Power Supply, isn't cleaned out on a regular basis as needed, this can cause Power Supply failure also.

Use a can of compressed air for computers, with the plastic 'straw' attached. Hold onto the can with one hand, use the other hand to hold onto the straw, shoot air through the ventilation holes of the Power Supply's case. (Computer unplugged from power)

Come around to the back of the computer, use the air to clean the Power Supply's fan blades, center hub, and surrounding cage. (Shroud)

When the cooling components for the Power Supply, (Fan and Heatsinks used inside), become clogged with dust, dirt, etc., the cooling capacity drops tremendously.

The Power Supply overheats.
Heat = Wasted Energy

The Power Supply strains to keep up with the call for power, but eventually cannot, and fails.
Components inside the Power Supply fail ]

Replace the Power Supply.

How do I disable onboard video for Acer M1641? There seems to be no option to do so in the bios and I cannot get a display on the new video card. Computer does post normal.


You say the computer posts normal--is the video card being recognized within Device Manager? Try installing by adding a new device, then everything should be fine. Also make sure that your monitor is plugged into the card :) . Try different connections to monitor if available.

I reboated my acer m1641 but after i reboted i couldent play not games some error pops out saying unknown grapichs card what can i do to solve this problem


You'll need to install the drivers for your video card. If you don't know the manufacturer for your card, you'll have to look on the video card itself, which is the card that the monitor connects to. If model number should be written on the card, then simply go to the manufacturers homepage and download the appropriate drivers. If your video card is built onto the motherboard, you'll need to find the model number of your motherboard and follow the same process. Hope this was helpful.

Acer Aspire T310, no signal to monitor?


Check and make sure the monitor is good by using another computer on that monitor. If that is good then the cable is good. Are you getting any video display at all? Does it start and then lose signal or no signal at all? Is there on board video or a video card installed or both? If there is both have you tried both vga connections? If there is a video card installed make sure that it has not come loose and is fully seated. Does the computer have lights when it boots up....Hard drive activity ect?
